Southborough, Leverett, Sunderland, Mass., and Brookfield, Vt., was born at
North Leverett, September 2, 1806, and died at DePere, Wis., January 7, 1889,
aged 82 years, 3 months.

He married at Ashfield, Mass., April 29, 1834, the Bev. Mason Grosvenor
officiating, Betsey Leonard, daughter of Ziba and Chloe (Shaw) Leonard* of
Bridgewater, Buckland and Ashfield, Mass. She was born at Ashfield, Mass.,
December 6, 1S09, and died at DePere, Wis., May 14, 1900, aged 90 years, 5
months.

After the death of his mother in 1819, Mr. Newton went to live with his
grandfather, Paul Newton, in North Leverett, where he remained about two
years. When he was fifteen years old (in 1821) he was apprenticed to Mr.
Chauncey Swan of "Bloody Brook" in Deerfield, Mass., a blacksmith, to learn
the trade, where he remained until he was twenty-one years of age. During this
time he devoted his spare time to study with Mr. Chapin Thayer of Hadley
(whose wife was his mother's sister, and in whose family his own sister, Esther,
lived). His apprenticeship ended, he worked four years as a journeyman black-
smith for Capt. Thomas White of Ashfield, Mass. During this period he was
converted and joined the Congregational Church at Ashfield. The records of that
church show the following: "Abel D. Newton united with the church Septem-
ber 7, 1827, and was baptized the same day." (It will be remembered that he
was brought up in Baptist families, thus was not baptized when a child.)

Mr. Newton was drawn to the Missionary work, and being of a philanthropic
nature, he put aside any prospect of worldly success, passed a year in study at
Ipswich (Mass.) Academy preparing himself for the missionary work that he
proposed. August 9, 1830, he made application to the American Board of Foreign

Missions at Boston, Mr. David Green, Secretary, for an appointment to labor
among the Indians. His application and testimonials were received August 12,
1830, read and the committee voted to appoint him an assistant missionary to
labor at Mackinaw, Mich., where, he says, "I taught the boys; sometimes
of their books, sometimes how to live, and sometimes of my trade."

The Board gave no compensation to any of its missionaries, except that their
traveling expenses were paid and they lived in the mission family. He was
directed to be in Rochester, N. Y., by the 15th of October 1830, when "It is
expected that Mr. and Mrs. Loomis, formerly connected with the Sandwich Island
Missions, and Miss Persis Skinner of Brooklyn, L. I., will accompany." It does
not seem unfitting that I here quote from his letter of instructions : "The school
there is the. principal means of doing good to the Indians, and therefore all the
departments of labor, and all the individuals employed in them, are to have
special reference to the improvement of the scholars in knowledge and character,
and the formation of industrious and good social habits; never losing sight of
the great end of all, which is, with the Divine blessing, to give the Gospel entire
control over their hearts and conduct.

"Your principal labor you may expect will be in the shop. When the boys are
out of school morning and evening, your aid may be needed, to considerable
extent, in directing their labors. When Mr. Heydenburk, who now has the prin-
cipal care of the boys, is unwell or otherwise occupied so as to be unable to be
with the boys, they may be under your charge for a few days. So, when any
labor of special importance is to be performed, and the boys are kept from school
for a few days to do it, your aid may be necessary in helping to superintend
them. The Committee are specially desirous of relieving Mr. Terry from the
burden of care which is upon him, and by which his health has been much
impaired. They will wish you, therefore, to contribute to this as much as you
can by bearing such a portion of the care and responsibility of the secular affairs,
as shall be mutually agreed upon by you and the other members of the Mission
family."

After an absence of nearly three years, in consequence of failing health from
overwork and need of a change of climate, on July 13, 1833, Mr. Newton was
released from further obligations to the Board and returned to Massachusetts.

Soon regaining his health, and wishing again to enter the Chippewa country,
he accepted a proposal of the American Fur Company to work as blacksmith at
their post at La Pointe, Lake Superior (where a mission had been established),
with the understanding that he could give as much of his time to missionary
work as he saw fit from time to time, Mr. Green writing him of this course:
"You may probably be nearly as useful to the Mission as if directly connected
with it, and at the same time have more influence over all classes of persons
engaged in the Fur trade and perhaps over the Indians, too, by being associated
with Mr. Warren." Mr. Lyman Warren was one of the resident members of the
Fur Company, Dr. Borup their physician and Rev. William Montague Ferry for
many years in charge of the Mission.

For three weeks after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Newton visited among their
friends — farewell visits, for they never again saw their native State, and then
began what was "their wedding journey," going by carriage to Troy, N. Y.,
thence by the Erie canal-boat to Buffalo, from there by steamboat to Detroit,
where they arrived May 25, 1834. On the 27th they took a sailing vessel — a
schooner — to Mackinaw, arriving May 30. After a three weeks' stay at the Mis-
sion waiting for the traders to get ready to go on, they left Mackinaw in row-
boats — thirteen boats belonging to the Fur Company laden with merchandise.
Besides themselves there were Mr. Warren, Dr. Borup and wife and a young
woman, Josette Pyant. Some of the voyageurs were accompanied by their squaw
wives and children. In letters written by both Mr. and Mrs. Newton to their



376 NEWTON GENEALOGY

friends in the East we have a very pleasant and detailed account of this trip,
and the manner of travel in those early times. They traveled by day and camped
on the shore in tents by night. While the portage was being made at Sault Ste.
Marie, the passengers were made welcome at the Baptist Mission there, Mr.
Brigham superintendent. Going on from there tbey skirted the southern shore
of Lake Superior and arrived at La Pointe, August 23, 1834 — twenty-eight days
out from Mackinaw. While with the Fur Company, Mr. Newton's shop work
consisted in making articles for the Indian trade, such as steel traps of all kinds,
knives, axes, shaves, tomahawks, etc. Edged tools were a specialty with him,
but he did something at about everything that iron or steel is used for, from
repairing watches to making the irons for sailing vessels. He was able to obtain
and keep the confidence of the Indians in a marked degree. In any disagree-
ment between them and the factors of the Fur Company they must know what
"Noden" thought was right and were always willing to abide by his decision.
Mr. Newton was quick in his movements, especially so when walking. The
Indians noticing this peculiarity gave him the name of "Noden," meaning in
tbeir language, the wind. He became proficient in the French and Indian lan-
guages as there spoken, and retained a memory of them in after years.

Mr. Newton was engaged to the Fur Company until July, 1840, but by 1837
the too constant heat from the fire of the forge began to affect his health, and
especially the eyes, and he was fearful he might have to leave the trade alto-
gether; hut he was able to fill his contract — the last work on which was done
at Sault Ste. Marie, where he made the irons for a sailing vessel, 1839.

After leaving the Fur Company he had intended to settle upon Grand River,
Mich., and did land at Grand Haven with his family and goods. They left there
within six weeks — the whole family having been attacked with ague, and came
to Green Bay, Wis., arriving October 29, 1839 — the ague still with them and
would not be shaken off all the following winter.

In Green Bay he was for a year in charge of the blacksmith shop of Mr.
Daniel Whitney. In 1841 he set up a shop for himself on Adams Street near the
southeast corner of Stuart Street and built a house on Jefferson Street, where
the family lived until 1851, when he removed to DePere, Wis., five miles south
from Green Bay, in which town he resided the remainder of his life. The house
he built at Green Bay is still (1913) occupied as a residence, in good repair.

Mr. and Mrs. Newton brought letters from the Church at La Pointe to the then
Presbyterian Church at Green Bay, and during their residence there were active
in its interests — Mrs. Newton having become a member of the Congregational
Church at Buckland, Mass., at the age of seventeen. Both were members of the
church choir, Mr. Newton playing in accompaniment the violoncello, Mrs.
Newton in vocal music. Mr. Newton was one of the trustees of the church ; was
frequently appointed on the Grand Jury, and on school committees. In politics
he was a Whig, and later a Republican, voting being the only active part he gave
to it, except some activity in the "underground railroad" to procure freedom
to a slave, occasionally — which was against the law.

In 1849 he purchased an unimproved tract of 120 acres of land, three and one-
half miles east of the village (now city of 5,000 inhabitants) of DePere, for a
farm. In 1850 he bought four lots in DePere village, where he built a house
and a shop, and where the family resided until 1861, when he moved to the farm —
where he also had a shop — where he died.

In person Mr. Newton was tall, of large frame, quite thin in flesh always, until
three or four of his last years, when he became more fleshy; fair hair and com-
plexion, blue eyes. Like his grandfather, uncles, brothers and several of his
cousins, he became bald when quite young, retaining only a light fringe of hair
at the back of the head. His manner and appearance is best described in the
words of a friend : "a gentle old man." In characteristics, he was of a religious



BRANCH OF MOSES 377

nature, firm in the essentials of the orthodox faith, but not bound by mere tra-
dition. He ever sustained the reputation of being an honorable, upright, indus-
trious man— a good citizen. He had a quick, practical judgment; ability to
gain knowledge, good memory of events and experiences which rendered his life
interesting.

His illness, lasting for years, was from a dropsical affection of the heart. His
position as ruling elder of the Presbyterian Church of DePere from 1862, con-
tinued till, from failing health, he was excused from active work ; but his Chris-
tian interest never departed from his heart; it never ceased its warm throbbings,
and age did not weaken till death quenched it, and his calm, well-balanced
Christian character was helpful to all who came in contact with him.

His first and second children were born at La Pointe. All of the others were
born at Green Bay, Wis.

Mrs. Newton was one of those bright minds of whom there is so much that
might be said that it is difficult to judge how much to leave out. Rev. Baxter
Newton wrote of her to his frieuds : "Cousin Abel's wife was a very remarkable
specimen of a well-preserved, independent, clear-minded, old lady, with an old-
fashioned faith in the Bible, untinged with any modern notions about these
things." Mrs. Newton was an "up-to-date" person every day of her life. She
had herself well in hand. She read a great deal and was able to form her own
opinions, as she kept in touch with the outer world and a knowledge of its
progress. The exercise of her mental powers was continued in a remarkable
degree to the last and her recollections of past events were fresh and accurate.
Her sense of humor was delightful. Her ability to discriminate was wonderful.
Her intuitions were almost as though she had already heard the evidence. The
last years of her life were years of cheerful, contented, quiet waiting. She had
brought up her children to respect and love her, and now she trusted them with
a perfect trust. She was in every way a charming personality.

Mrs. Newton very much enjoyed her membership in the Society of the D. A. R.
She was admitted January 25, 189G, her eligibility coming through the services
of her father, Ziba Leonard, and of her mother's father, Sergeant Isaac Shaw,
minute-men of the Revolution. Being a living "Real Daughter," her member-
ship was sought by several chapters — even those so far away as Connecticut and
New York. No Sorority girl ever enjoyed being "rushed," more than she did
the contest for her favor. She finally joined the Chapter at Milwaukee, Wis.,
then the only one in the state, and received from the National Society the
engraved gold spoon by them bestowed on "Real Daughters." Her National
number is 11,824. Her daughter, Ermina E., was admitted to membership May 9,
1894, a life member, No. 5,212 ; her eligibility, in addition to the soldiers above,
coming through her father's ancestors Paul Newton 5 , Daniel and Medad Mon-
tague (father and son) and Captain Abel Densmore. Also, Mrs. Newton's grand-
daughter, Mrs. Eola Lindsay, is a member of the Plymouth (Wis.) Chapter, No.
67,372.

Mr. Newton, in making his will (on record at Green Bay, Wis.), left his prop-
erty in the form of a trust deed, for the benefit of his wife, to the extent of
using the whole of it if necessary, making his son, James K., and his daughter,
Ermina E., trustees; or the survivor of them, sole trustee. It is a satisfaction
to record that his widow was perfectly satisfied with the performance of the
trust.

and Elizabeth (Irwin) Dickinson* of Middlebury, Vt., and DePere, Wis.
He was born at DePere, Wis., April 9, 1834, and died there April 15, 1885.
Mr. Dickinson was a farmer in DePere and in Eau Claire, Wis., and later
was employed as health permitted. lie was a person of good habits,
industrious, peculiar and notional in his ways, generous In disposition.
In the year 1802 he began to have epileptic fits, which continued with
short intervals through the rest of his life — at times causing imbecility.
Too much praise cannot be given Mrs. Dickinson for the courage, con-
stancy and devotion with which she fought the battle of life so bravely.
"Life's heavy burdens" seemed at times too heavy to bear ; but she
carried all cheerfully, willingly, gladly. In her strife with "the wolf at
the door," the needle was always a resource. For several years she kept
a boarding house for workingmen in West DePere, and later a small ice
cream parlor and restaurant. She was a woman full of sympathy for all
in affliction, ready to share her last with the needy — making their woes
her own. After her husband's death she lived with her children — in
Oregon, Washington and Plymouth, Wis. Burial beside her husband and
children at DePere, Wis. Her five children were:

learned the trade of woodenware turner. In 1875 he came to DePere,
and engaged in the woodenware factory of "E. E. Bolles & Co." In
1887 was elected and served as alderman of West DePere. From its
formation was a member of the Temple of Honor in DePere. In 1888



* William Dickinson was born in Middlebury. Vt, and came early to Wisconsin, where
he took up land and was many years engaged in the manufacture of lumber. lie owned one
of the "Private Claims*' on the Fox river — beginning in what is now the south part of the
city, abutting on the river, and reaching eastward two and one-half miles. The whole tract
has now passed out of the family. From having been a General in the Militia in the East,
he was usually called "<!en. Dickinson." lie was a man of generous impulses, of business
capacity, and was much respected in the community. The following copy of an old receipt
written in a jesting manner by him I give entire. It shows the early date of his being in
this state. The receipt was found in Feb.. 1913, by Mrs. W. H. Sempier, among the papers
left by her grandfather, the late Alex. Clermont, who carried the mail on foot from Green
Bay to Chicago in 1832. The receipt reads as follows :

"Received of his Majesty. Mr. Bonaventure Gardapee, the sum of Ten Dollars in full pay-
ment of a Gun pent him in the winter of 1821 which was not returned, to my great disap-
pointment and Wonder Wm. Dickinson.
